The Raider Jamboree is from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Car Riders: Pick-Up and Drop-Off
Students not riding the bus must be dropped off and picked up at the designated spot along the west sidewalk of the Copopa building. Please make sure to follow the drop-off and pick-up traffic patterns and go through the car rider line. Parents are not permitted out of their vehicles during drop-off. No student is to be dropped off prior to 8:10 am. If you pull-up to the drop-off lane after approximately 8:27 a.m. and there is no staff member outside you MUST walk your child into the office and sign the child in prior to him/her heading to class. All students MUST be in the classroom by 8:30 a.m. or they are considered tardy.
If you are planning on picking up your child after school at the last minute, please contact the Copopa office by 2:55 p.m. and we'll add your child's name to the car rider list. You can also send a note to school with your child and we will add him/her to the pick-up list for that specific day. We use the same traffic pattern for pick-up as we do for morning drop-off. Parents are not permitted out of their vehicles during pick-up.
If you will be picking your child up from school every day (no bus transportation), please contact the office and we will have you fill out a permanent pick-up form. You will not be required to send a note or call the office daily if we have this on file.
Save the Date
I have tried to put as many things as the calendar as possible so parents can plan accordingly. I know it is difficult to get off work or make arrangements for transportation last minute. There may be other things add to the calendar as the year progresses forward. However, you can save the date for events listed below.
